Not yet. I'm still waiting like a good little guinea pig.

Hi Granny,
I ordered the LE for the strategy guide also.
Very disappointed to find Ubi screwed everyone with the postcard size guide. I have a LE of Exile and it came with a full sized guide so I expected that EOA would be full sized also. When I lamented about this on the Mystobsession forum I was promptly put down.It seems to me that Ubi is trying to kill the whole Myst series.Iwont be buying anymore Ubi products.EOA was great though.I hope Cyan comes back with more later on.

I just got my Myst V I ordered from Gogamer for $29.90. It is exactly like the Collector's Edition, though it says Limited Edition on the outside wrapper. Very heavy and quite nice. It was not what was pictured on the Gogamer site.

Hammer, here are some links posted earlier in the thread. The game weighs more than a pound and looks like a book with a simulated leather cover.

I have finally received my copy happydance I was a little worried when my copy had not arrived several days after Rusty's had, since we had ordered on the same day. But I contacted the company and after verifying my shipping information they sent me out a replacement. They were very professional and considering how quickly they returned my e-mails and shipped the replacement I feel that their customer service is a high priority. I will certainly buy again from them.

I just wanted to tell everyone that I finally got my copy from GoGamer and it is indeed some kind of Limited edition, exactly as the European collector's edition was described. Run, don't walk, to gogamer today...

The collector's edition looks like this

The one at Gogamer looks like this

Are you saying that what you got from Gogamer was not what they have pictured on their site?
Does it open up like a book like the one pictured here?

After buying the North American Limited Edition (with the mini Prima Guide) , I was disappointed to find out that the UK Collectors Edition had the D'ni dictionary.
So, being the Myst fan that I am, I bought the UK release as well. slapforehead
That is as severe a case of BAAGs as I've ever experienced help smile .

Jenny, the game I got from Gogamer is the collector's edition just like the pictures. The image they had on the site at that time was not what I got. They have since changed the image, so I don't know what you will get. I wonder if you could call them and find out?

colpet -- I think you might be in the running for the 2005 BAAGS Beyond the Call of Duty medal.

What I got looks exactly like the collector's edition. It is also the same as the picture that looks like it opens as a book, although I didn't open mine yet so I can't tell you how it opens. It looks like the inner book is turned around (the binding is on the outside, not the inside) so I doubt it is connected to the package like it appears to be in that picture.

The picture on the Gogamer site essentially shows one of the DVD cases that is inside the collector's edition (it's also visible in the "opens like a book" picture). They have not changed anything on the site since I bought it, except for the price.

I got the collectors edition in the UK. It contains 2 DVDs and a book.

The first DVD is the game and the other is a making of video and the game soundtracks.

The book contains a D'ni dictionary, a short story and loads of images.

After ordering the only version gogamer was selling, it turned out to be exactly what gogamer has pictured. It is definitely NOT the Collector's edition. It's a DVD in a DVD case.
